The number of smart-phone users is currently increasing to a large extent, making mobile phones a significant means for online marketing. Along with mobile marketing, the use of mobile apps can be an effective measure for advertising products, brands and services. Mobile apps enable smart-phones or other mobile terminals to be used for a number of implementations. They can draw more attention to a brand and contribute to customer relations.
In order to successfully launch an app onto the market and use it for the purpose of online marketing, one needs a good strategy. Due to the large number and variety of apps already available for smart-phones, especially iPhones and androids, the visibility of new applications is of utmost importance. Above all, apps must have a high user rate and offer the user a real benefit. Because the programming of an app can generate high costs, a balance is generally maintained between one’s own commercial interests and consumer benefits.
Before the application is established, the objective and target audience thereof must be defined. In addition, an analysis of target audience activity and competitive apps is important. The planning phase also includes considerations for financial planning. Generally, gratis or inexpensive apps are most often utilised. The apps themselves must be suitable in terms of public perception and the advertising strategy. Hereby, further marketing objectives are taken into consideration.
A high position in the app store for the corresponding platform is also an important factor for success. The appropriate app store is chosen according to the target audience. Finally, the application must be directly promoted. In particular, a goal-oriented mobile advertising strategy promises the best results. Additionally, publicity should be increased with a variety of other online marketing tactics. Social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter, for instance, as well as corporate blogs or press releases are all suitable options to this effect.
In the area of mobile applications, customer relations are difficult to maintain, as customers tend to switch applications quickly. Additionally, the preferred mobile phone brands are constantly changing, thereby making it worthwhile to offer apps for all significant mobile platforms.
